Something Rotten! is an outrageous, crowd-pleasing musical farce that received several Best Musical nominations and was hailed by Time Out New York as “the funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years.” Set in the Renaissance period, Something Rotten! tells the story of brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom who are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star known as “The Bard.” When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing, and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first musical. Something Rotten! features song, dance, and tap numbers, and a cast of over-the-top characters.
